Sudbury, All Saints

Sudbury, All Saints

All Saints, Sudbury can be found adjacent to Sudbury Hall, the ancestral home of the Vernon family, now a National Trust property.  There has been a church at Sudbury since before the Domesday survey, although the church as it stands now was rebuilt in the 14th and 15th centuries.  The church was later enlarged and restored in the 19th century.  The Norman south doorway and a small window in the chapel remain.

The east window was a gift from Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, as Queen Adelaide had lived at Sudbury Hall.

The church contains numerous memorials and monuments of the Vernon family.  One particularly touching one is an oval plaque showing two children who died in 1862- they are shown sleeping, with a few trails of blossom surrounding  them.
